Thankful and Grateful

My pet peeve is misspelled words. Misspell (mispell) is one of the most commonly misspelled words! Really?! I actually critiqued a Valentine card from my husband before we were married. He’s pretty suave, but he can’t spell! Grateful is another commonly misspelled word. OK, I’ve done it! I spelled it GREATful for a long time until… Continue reading Thankful and Grateful

Have You Ever Thanked Your Feet?!

Have you ever thanked your feet? Yes, you read that right. It wasn’t like I couldn’t think of anything when I read that quote. My feet were the first thing that popped in my head!

Meow at the Moon!

I asked Chris for suggestions for my post title. He liked Howl at the Moon, but cats don’t howl.  Or do they? We’ve never had a cat, so I don’t know. My neighbor’s cat sounds like it is howling at 3 am…right under my bedroom window. I wonder sometimes if my dog is deaf, but he… Continue reading Meow at the Moon!

Make a Scene!

I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of stamps. Lately, I’ve been challenging myself to use multiple stamps from different kits on my projects. That led to scene building! Sometimes I’m  intimidated by the size of an art journal page or scrapbook layout. That can be a lot of white space to… Continue reading Make a Scene!
